Australia’s Disgusting Jellyfish Invasion! I Can Solve It: Eat Them! Recipes For Jellyfish Are The Rage!

Disgusting “Bluebottle” Jellyfish Invade Queensland Australia!

Yes, there is a Jellyfish invasion underway!

It’s a very painful invasion with almost 23,000 people reporting Jellyfish stings in Australia!

These disgusting looking Jellyfish are causing big problems.

Here is how the terrific news site The Guardian is reporting this:

“More than 5,000 people were stung by bluebottles on Queensland’s Gold and Sunshine coasts over the weekend as weather drove a wall of jellyfish onto the shore.

Conditions eased on Monday but remnants of the bluebottle armada (the correct term for a bunch of bluebottles) still dot the beaches and more than 200 people were treated for stings, mostly at the Sunshine Coast.”

The Guardian goes on to report:

“Across Queensland, but mostly in the south-east, 22,282 people sought treatment for bluebottle stings between 1 December and 7 January compared with 6,831 in the same period last year.”

Wow, that’s a lot of stings – and a lot of Jellyfish!

Here is the entire story at The Guardian:

Wow, those are disgusting…but I have a way to solve this crisis:

Eat Them!

That’s right, some inventive Chefs have already begun to cook with Jellyfish! They are edible, nutritious, and as you can see – VERY PLENTIFUL!


I posted this story last year about inventive Chefs who are cooking with Jellyfish – making dishes like this:

Yes, this is Jellyfish Tempura! Dig in! See more recipes by reading my original story here:

It will be interesting to see how they solve this Jellyfish crisis – I hope they cook them all up!

  1. I’m not sure if those are the jelly fish you eat though are they!?

    I tried a pigs ear and jellyfish salad in Okinawa once, and although it sounds horrific it was really good. I’d totally eat more jellies…just maybe not those otherworldly blue ones!!

  2. Wow! There are a lot of them on the beach.

  3. I think I’ll leave it to others to eat jellyfish! On the other hand, Tempura batter can disguise anything! 🙂

  4. I have to say that it looks very ‘chewy’, John, cooked or not. I’m sure the local zoo would be able to feed them to bigger fish, and sharks! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Pete that’s a great point as well – the fact is, jellyfish are 100% sustainable, so we won’t run out – and they are nutritious – with a little help from great Chefs they can be edible as well!
